Week 2 2019: #CFB picks are graded; results are in!

Week 2 of our college football season is in the books.  Let’s see how our expert panel of predictors and prognosticators did this week.

This week’s winner on straight up picks is going to be none other than special celebrity guest Matthew McConaughey at 9-2 on his picks this week.  Our winners against the spread this week are going to be Brett McMurphy and Rico Bosco at 4-1 on the week.  That’s probably the first time those two have been brought together so hopefully Brett and Rico enjoy their week together.

I’ll give our straight up loss this week to Ivan Maisel and Mark Schlabach for going 1-4 on their ESPN.com picks this week.  Our ATS loss this week gets shared by Pat Forde and Chris Fallica for going 1-4 ATS.

Lee Corso went 6-5 on the week but got his LSU headgear pick right.  As I mentioned, Matthew McConaughey went 9-2 on the week.  Bear’s Bank went 1-2 on the week.  @GamedayJen went 7-5 on the week.  Super Dogs went a collective 0-4 on the week.

Everyone else was somewhere in the middle so check out the grade below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.

Week 1 2019: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in (corrected)

I posted grades last night and was quickly informed they contained a number of errors.  I wrote a new grading script in the offseason and forgot to account for one teeny tiny aspect of neutral site games and it blew things apart for week 1.  I think I’ve got the script fixed and here are the corrected grades.  If you find any other errors please make sure to roast me on social media as usual.
